CAFOD Hexham and Newcastle welcomes Sharon Matthews as their new Education Co-ordinator across our Diocese.

Sharon is delighted to have been appointed to her new role supporting Mark Maughan who will now focus on working with parishes in our Diocese. She was a primary school teacher of 25 years in the Diocese of Hallam and RE Co-ordinator for the last 5 years.

CAFOD is the official overseas aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales reaching out to people who live in poverty, so that every woman, man and child can live a full and dignified life.

Could you be a CAFOD Schools Volunteer?

Volunteers are wanted to help children/students learn about the work of CAFOD. Could you help your local school deliver assemblies and/or workshops that encourage young people to put faith into action to help others? It would only require a few hours of your time each term and you would be assisting your local community to work together for the Common Good. No experience is necessary, and full support and training will be given.
